PENNYROYAL (Mentha puleglum): Use to repel fleas from your pets and home. Also used as a general insect repellent at a safe dilution. Warning: Abortive. Keep away from pregnant women.
TEA TREE OIL (Melaleuca alternifolia): Repels ticks, leeches, and lice.
NATURAL INSECT REPELLENT SUGGESTIONS
Summer usually means outdoor activities and sports, gardening, barbeques, and family gatherings. Summertime also means bugs. Some people seem to attract them more than others, but most people will find the swarms of insects extremely annoying and painful if bitten or stung. Many chemical insect repellents contain DEET, a dangerous substance. Here are some more natural repellent methods of providing some insect relief without the use of dangerous chemicals.
CEDAR: Cedar has a long history of providing repellent use if you are prone to moth issues. Natural cedar is a great way to keep them away and has been used for cedar chests and closets to protect clothing. Since moths have a natural aversion to cedar, cedar wood blocks or cedar shavings can be purchased and placed in your closet or dresser in order to keep those pesky bugs from chewing through all your clothes and other fabrics. For more information on moths, and the havoc they can wreak on your home, here’s a great article from the Martha Steward: The Basics of Mothproofing.
THE BASICS OF MOTHPROOFING
MARTHA STEWART LIVING, APRIL 2005
Caring for wool sweaters and household items may be your last concern at this time of year. But the steps you take now can make all the difference in what you find when you bring out your things in the fall: wonderful woolens, or ones peppered with holes.
WHAT'S BUGGING YOU
If you see moths flying in your house, they probably aren't clothes moths, but pantry pests -- the type that infests flour and grains. Clothes moths don't like light and are so secretive that you'll probably never see them. What's more, the adult moths won't do any harm. Damage to woolens is actually done by the larvae of two types of insects: clothes moths and carpet beetles (the latter being more prevalent than moths in most areas of the country). Both insects lay eggs in secluded spots with plenty of food -- wool, fur, down, shed pet dander, and other animal-based materials. Larvae emerge within a few weeks; beetle larvae can feed on fabric for a year or more and moth larvae may cause damage for a couple months.
Moth and beetle larvae shun bright light, so they rarely attack frequently worn clothing or heavily trafficked carpets. They thrive in clothing that is packed away and carpet hidden under furniture, especially if there are food spills or other attractive scents. The best strategy? Keep things clean.
Weekly use of the vacuum and general good housekeeping go a long way toward keeping pests at bay. If you clean often, you may remove them without even knowing it. Vacuuming also removes moth eggs and larvae from carpets before they have the opportunity to hatch.
Before you pack up winter clothing for storage, wash or dry-clean garments that have been worn. This rids them of moth and beetle eggs and also eliminates perspiration remnants and food spills, which attract and nourish pests. Moths and beetles don't eat items made of synthetic or cotton fabrics, but you should clean those, too, if you store them with woolens.
If you have winter coats you haven't worn, you probably won't want to pay for dry cleaning just to guard against eggs that might have been deposited on them. Yet if you store them as is, you risk an infestation. In this case, try an old-fashioned but effective regimen: Take the items outside on a sunny day and brush them vigorously, especially under collars and along seams. This should remove eggs and larvae, which are so small, you probably won't be able to see them. In case you miss a few of the pests or their eggs, pack this clothing separately from laundered or dry-cleaned items. SMART STORAGE
Moths and beetles can get through extremely tight spaces. When storing woolens, reclosable plastic bags or plastic boxes are best for keeping pests out. To protect the items from condensation, wrap them in lengths of clean cotton, and store. Take care in using plastic containers for long-term storage -- years rather than months -- as they do not allow the items to breathe, and some plastics may degrade fabric over time. If storing valuable items, consult with a professional textile conservator for recommendations.
CHOOSING A METHOD
There are numerous products -- some natural, some chemical-based, and with varying levels of effectiveness -- that are intended to deter moths and beetles. It's best to know a product's pros and cons before you make a choice. In the right circumstances, any of these approaches can be useful. Just remember that nothing discourages clothes moths and carpet beetles more than keeping your woolen items clean and storing them correctly.
The dark-colored heartwood of red cedar contains natural oils that kill clothes-moth larvae, but this alone won't protect clothing. It's not effective against carpet beetles, and, with moths, it kills only young larvae, not older ones or eggs. The effect also fades as the scent does. You can replenish the scent of boards, closets, and chests by sanding the wood lightly or dabbing on cedar oil, but there is no way to know if you've added enough. If you have a cedar chest, it's best to think of it as a reasonably airtight storage container -- and only keep clean fabric inside it. Again, wrap items in clean cotton before storing them.
MOTHBALLS & MOTH CRYSTALS
These can thwart infestations but come with many drawbacks, so you're probably better off without them. Both products contain pesticides that can be harmful to people, unborn babies, and pets. Since mothballs and moth crystals work by releasing fumigant gas, they must be used in tight-fitting containers, rather than in closets or drawers, to be effective. If you do use these products, keep containers out of your living area -- in a garage, perhaps. And air out clothing thoroughly outside before wearing it or hanging it in your closet again (dry cleaning won't eliminate the mothball odor).
Using this plant to repel clothes moths is an old homemaker's trick. Sachets filled with lavender (and/or laced with its oil) and suspended in your closet or tucked in your drawers are said to protect woolens. They will also leave a pleasant scent behind. Lavender will not, however, kill moth eggs or larvae, so be sure the space is free of them first.
SOLVING AN EXISTING PROBLEM
What if you already have clothes or carpet pests? Here are some tips for identifying the bugs you are dealing with, getting rid of them, and then salvaging your woolen items.
What to Look For: You won't likely see clothes moths, but if you find holes, you know you have a problem. With moth larvae, you may find silky webbing or cigarlike cocoons. Beetle larvae leave dried skins -- like tiny rice grains. Treating Clothes: Remove and treat all infested material. You might throw away the most damaged clothing. Dry-clean or launder items you keep; freezing also eradicates pests: Put items in sealed plastic bags, squeeze out air, and freeze for a few days. Take the bags out, let them return to room temperature, and then repeat. In case of condensation, let clothes air out before storing again. Cleaning Carpets: For a severe infestation, call a professional. To treat a minor problem, buy a spray made for these pests and spot test to make sure it doesn't affect the carpet color. Apply, following label instructions, anywhere you find traces of larvae or don't often clean -- such as behind bookcases and along baseboards. Treat both sides of the carpet (if not fastened down) and the rug pad. Catching Them All: Clean your house thoroughly before replacing treated items. If furniture is infested, you might need to call an exterminator. Using Traps: Try pheromone-laced cardboard traps to check if moths remain. (These shouldn't be your main defense, however, and won't trap beetles.) Mending: You may be able to repair blankets or other large-thread items yourself, using matching yarn. Finely woven items and heirlooms should be taken to a company that specializes in reweaving.
CITRUS PEELS: Here is a tip for keeping spiders out of your home, and it smells nice too! You can use the peels of any citrus fruits to rub down any areas of your house that spiders have been frequenting, like windowsills or bookshelves. An added perk? Citrus peels also make a great natural furniture polish for wood surfaces.
LEMON EUCALYPTUS: According to bug experts, Lemon Eucalyptus essential oil is as effective as DEET in repelling mosquitoes. Lemon eucalyptus oil can also be used to prevent deer tick bites.
GARLIC: Garlic is an easy, tasty way to keep the mosquitoes off of you. Eat lots of garlic. When your body secretes the garlic, bugs will be able to sense it, and they will avoid you. You can also get the same effect by sprinkling garlic powder around your home, if you do not want to battle garlic breath, although fresh garlic is always best.
WHITE VINEGAR: If you have an ant problem, put some white vinegar in a spray bottle, and lightly spritz areas where ants like to hang out. Make sure to test the solution first if you are going to be using it on carpet or a colored fabric. White vinegar has many uses around the house.
HERBS: If you are looking for a great way to keep bugs from ever getting into your house in the first place, plant some fragrant herbs around both the front and back doors of your house and under window sills. Not only will these herbs keep insects from making themselves at home, they will also liven up all your dishes in the kitchen. Some great choices are Catnip, Lemongrass, Garlic, Mints, Citronella, Basil and Bay Leaves.
MOSQUITO REPELLING PLANTS
As spring slowly arrives and the snow melts away, the expectations of warm weather takes hold and spring fever hits us like a pie in the face. However, it is difficult to forget the unwelcome insects that come with warm weather. Mosquitoes can be a huge nuisance as well as carriers of blood borne diseases. Using wide spread chemical products for mosquito pest control is not a desired option for many individuals. It is important to eliminate their habitat as much as possible, such as standing water in marshes and ponds where eggs are laid and hatched. Beyond that, here are some plants that help to repel mosquitoes naturally.
CITRONELLA: Citronella is one of the most common ingredients in most mosquito repellents. Citronella extract comes from a plant. Citronella is a beautiful perennial clumping grass that emits a strong aroma. That aroma masks other scents, and keeps mosquitoes from being attracted to things located around it. The citronella plant has a much stronger aroma than other mosquito repellents that contain citronella, so it is a great choice. Citronella is very easy to grow, and can get to be a very tall 5 or 6 feet high! You can grow citronella in pots and place it around a porch or patio, or you can plant it directly in a yard or garden bed. It is a great choice for repelling mosquitoes naturally and is a good choice for those living near wetlands or other standing water areas. Plants and seeds are available for growing.
LEMON BALM: Lemon Balm is another great choice for a mosquito repelling plant. A member of the mint family, the plant also known as horsemint and beebalm is a very easy plant for beginning gardeners to grow- even if you do not have a green thumb. Lemon Balm is a very hardy plant, it resists drought, and it grows well even in shade. It is a very fast growing and sometimes aggressive plant, so you might want to contain it to a pot, where you can move it to wherever you like to ensure that it does not take over your garden. The leaves can be dried and used to make a delicious herbal tea.
CATNIP: Cats and human babies love catnip. Cats find it addicting and babies find a tea made from the leaves calming and soothing to colicky tummies. Catnips is also a great mosquito deterrent. In fact, in a 2010 study, researchers found that catnip is 10 times more effective than DEET, the ingredient commonly found in bug repellents. It is a very easy plant to grow, and if you have cats in the house, they will surely be happy to have it around. However, be careful not to plant catnip in with other flowers, veggies, or herbs if you have cats around your garden. They will surely roll around in the catnip and smash everything nearby. To keep cats from eating it down to the dirt, killing the plant, place a wire basket or chicken wire formed into a domed hat over the top of the plant to prevent feline overindulgence.
MARIGOLDS: French Marigolds or True Marigolds are a bright, hardy annual plant and are a great choice for repelling mosquitoes and other insects in and about the yard and gardens. Marigolds contain Pyrethrum, an ingredient found in many insect repellents, and they have a unique aroma which bugs find repulsive. The flowers themselves are beautiful and can make a great border or addition to any flower bed! Try placing them around borders of your home, and mosquitoes might not want to cross over. True Marigolds are not edible and are toxic to humas as well as bugs. Do not spray their compounds on parts of plants that people will eat. Do not confuse with Pot Marigold, commonly known as Calendula (Calendula officinalis) which is a safe herb used internally and externally in herbal medicinal preparations.
BASIL: Basil provides not only a basic herb for cooks and herbalists, but it also provides protection against mosquitoes. Plant some basil in your garden or on your windowsill. You will have a quick and easy mosquito repellent and have a delicious fresh herb on hand to add to all of your favorite recipes. There are many different varieties of basil around, so feel free to experiment and find the ones that you like best. Many expert gardeners recommend trying lemon basil or cinnamon basil to deter insects.
LAVENDER: Lavender is a purple flowering plant with a soothing, calming scent. It is also a natural mosquito repellent. Grow it indoors near a sunny window, or outside in your garden or flower bed to keep the bugs away. You can also make a delicious herbal tea, or use lavender to fill your home with a wonderful calming aroma.
PEPPERMINT: Peppermint has a strong menthol (mint) aroma. Most insects hate the smell and taste of peppermint, so planting it around your home is a great way to keep them from dropping by uninvited. It is also known as a mouse repellent. If you do happen to get bitten by an insect, peppermint leaves rubbed directly onto the skin make a great itch relief treatment. It also makes a delicious addition to food and beverages.
GARLIC: Garlic, when eaten may not repel mosquitos (unless a huge amount is eaten), but studies have shown that having garlic around does repel insects. Add garlic to your flower bed or vegetable garden for added protection.
PENNYROYAL: The Pennyroyal flower is a natural deterrent for mosquitoes. Plant some around your flowerbeds and use as groundcovers, and they attract a plethora of beautiful butterflies. Some people even use pennyroyal to flavor certain fish dishes. Pennyroyal should be avoided by pregnant women to avoid miscarriage.
ROSEMARY: Rosemary is a beautiful flowering plant that is often used to flavor lamb or fish dishes, but it is also a natural mosquito repellent. It is a perfect addition to your herb garden or flowerbed to keep bugs away, and it even attracts butterflies. Plus you can simply snip a few springs off every time you need to add extra flavor to your lamb or steak.
GERANIUM: Geranium is a beautiful flowering plant is a great choice for mosquito repellent. When planted in a hanging container, the colorful blooms will cascade over the side of the pot, providing a beautiful visual piece as well as a very useful bug repellent
KEEP A CLEAN HOUSE: Keeping a clean house is a great way to keep pests out. Make sure to dust regularly, vacuum and wash all surfaces with soapy water frequently to keep pests from making themselves at home in your home.
CINNAMON: Sprinkling cinnamon around the house is a great way to keep bugs out. Experts say that if you sprinkle the cinnamon in a line around the bugs' point of entry, they will not cross it. Another interesting tip is to sprinkle cinnamon in kid's sandboxes can keep bugs from hanging out in there as well.
BABY POWDER: Although some individuals may not consider Baby Powder a natural substance, it is better than using DEET. Baby powder sprinkled all around is said to repel bees and wasps, so you might want to think about it if you have those little suckers hanging around your house.
CHALK: Apparently ants willl avoid walking through chalk. If you want to keep ants out, draw chalk lines around your house, and they will not want to cross them. They will need to be refreshed frequently, especially after rain storms or walk wear in traffic areas.
CUCUMBER SLICES: To keep ants off your kitch counters, slice up a cucumber and leave it laying around. Ants will avoid it and they will try to stay as far away as possible.
DRYER FABRIC SOFTENER SHEETS: Putting a dryer sheet in your pocket while you are hiking, camping, or gardening can keep mosquitoes, gnats, and other insects out of your way. It is easier than using bug spray, and your clothes will smell nice.
ONION: Onion is a common insect repellent trick from the senior citizen crowd. Slice up some onions and put them in a bowl of water. The bugs will avoid it. Onion plants can be used in the garden as companion plants to keep bugs from attacking their partner plants.
VANILLA EXTRACT: Vanilla Extract is an insect repellent that does not smell like garlic or onions. You can mix vanilla extract with water for a smell good insect repellent. You can also add Lemongrass, Lavender, or Mint extracts to the mixture too, and you will be smelling great while you fight off the pests.
WEAR LIGHT COLORED CLOTHING: While you are probably already wearing light-weight clothing, since it is summertime and all, consider wearing light colored clothing as well. Mosquitoes are for some reason attracted to dark colored clothing, so switching up your fashion choices might actually keep the bugs away.
KEEP RELAXED & CALM: When we stress, or sweat, our bodies release hormones and pheromones that the bugs are attracted to. Try not to exercise outside, and if you need to stress out, do it inside in front of the air conditioner.
SOYBEAN OIL: Soybean oil is usually used in cooking, but recent research has shown that it is also a great insect repellent. In a recent study, experts found that insect repellents made with soybean oil kept the mosquitoes away for an astonishing 94.6 minutes, which was more than any other plant based repellent that was tested.
CITRONELLA: Citronella is a lemony grass-like plant that bugs absolutely hate. It is found in almost all outdoor candles, torches and lanterns. It is one of the most powerful natural insect repellents. You can buy or make the candles, but you can also plant citronella grass outside of your home, and you can buy the oil and rub it directly on your skin.
USE UNSCENTED TOILETRIES: Bugs are automatically attracted to flowers and fruit, so if you are shampooing with strawberry-mango shampoo and spritzing with passionfruit body spray, you are probably going to be a bug target. If bug bites are a huge problem for you, try to opt for unscented or fragrance free body products.
BUILD A BAT HOUSE: This is a great option if you are menaced by bugs. Bats are great bug hunters and consume them as food. Building a bat house and attracting bats to live near your house can pretty much annihilate the mosquito population. Bats can eat up to 3000 mosquitoes in a single night, so you might want to consider hiring them to do your dirty work for you. Bats are underrated. Besides being the only mammal that flies, most North American bats are nocturnal insectivores, which means they feed on night-flying insects especially mosquitoes. In fact, a small bat can devour more than 600 mosquitoes in a single hour. They also eat beetles, wasps, and moths. So encouraging bats to nest near your house is a natural way to keep your yard bug-free. A bat house is easy to make in an afternoon. Its shallow construction is designed specifically to attract bats, which like cramped, dark spaces for nesting. Kids can do lots of the work involved in making this bat house, including measuring, driving screws, and painting (dark colors on the outside only). Parents need to help out with the sawing. Once you have finished it, hang your bat house high in a sunny corner of your backyard, and the bats will soon find a stylish new home. For templates for this project, follow this PDF Bat House.
GET RID OF STANDING WATER: Mosquitoes like to live in standing water. They need it to lay their eggs, so you might be inadvertently inviting them to hang out at your home. That bird bath or kiddie pool in the yard might look like a mosquito hotel. Keep your grass trimmed short and get rid of any containers that might be harboring standing water, so your home does not seem so enticing to those little pests.
INSECT TRAPS: You can make a great mosquito trap using super cheap materials such as a 2 liter soda bottle, sugar, and water. There are mixed results using these homemade traps. Many find they do not work well. Here are the instructions if you want to give it a try.
MAKING A MOSQUITO TRAP
Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide we breathe out. Here are some ideas about making your own mosquito trap using the carbon dioxide lure to attract them.
One 2-liter soda bottle Sharp knife Black paper Tape Candy thermometer
Take a 2-liter soda bottle and cut off the top right below where it starts to narrow for the top, invert and place inside the lower half. Make a simple sugar syrup mixture.
1 cup sugar 1 cup water 2 cups cool water 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
Bring 1 cup of the water to a boil. Add the sugar and dissolve in the boiling water. Once the sugar is dissolved completely, remove the pan from the heat. Stir in 2 cups cool water and stir well. Check the temperature of the syrup to make sure it is no hotter than 90°F. If too warm, allow to cool to 90°F and add 1 teaspoon active dry yeast. No need to mix the yeast into the sugar water.
Put sugar syrup-yeast mixture in the bottom part of the bottle, using the cut off neck piece, leave in place. Seal the two parts of the bottle with the tape. The fermenting yeast will release carbon dioxide. Wrap black paper around the bottle since mosquitoes like dark places as well as the carbon dioside. The mosquito trap will then start working.
Place the trap in a dark and humid place or corner for two weeks. You will see the effect of the trap and you will have a lot of dead mosquitoes after two weeks. You will need to replace the sugar water and yeast solution every to weeks to keep the trap working.
